AIRBRUSHED BLOSSOM COOKIES/ Art Deco



Art Deco … the artsy look calls to me!

The design which emerged during the 1920’s and continued through the 1930’s evoked luxury and glamour. It was visible in architecture, wall paper, jewelry and art, just to list a few. The iconic Chrysler Building on Manhattan’s Lexington Avenue comes to mind as an exquisite example of the architecture of that era. My first apartment in Washington, DC, aptly named The Delano, boasts the distinctive curved and stacked design. Small designs of the day were bold and busy, such as chevrons, arches and fans.


Art deco has made a resurgence today with designs gaining popularity in home d├ęcor. It’s the latest craze in cookie decorating too as my collection of cookie stencils expand. These cookies were decorated with the fan stencil using an airbrush in festive colors. The result is impressive and creates a clean, sharp look. It is a great decorating technique when time is limited.
